Here with a whole family. Ordered four pizzas and multiple salads. The pizzas were fresh and tasty as always. The Punch salad was far too vinigary, though. A hopping and fun environment.

The pizza here is simple: it's made right in front of you if you wait for it. Pizza takes 10 min or less due to the 800 degree ovens. Tasty and fresh, though I agree a little undercooked in the center. Nice outdoor seating. Great value.

If you are visiting our wonderful Grand Avenue on your trip to St. Paul, this is one of many great casual places for lunch or dinner.

I've eaten here countless times. My kids love it. The Toto pizza is fantastic. Great salads, too. Friendly people work here and they are paid fairly (at least $11/hour in 2015).

Excellent pizza and super fast too. A few vegetarian options and extremely delightful. We had a salad that turned up with some pork meat variant. They quickly replaced it with another without fuss. We were a large party and had a sumptuous dinner in under an hour.

I'll admit, when my friend suggested this place, I wasn't too excited for pizza, she explained that the pizza is supposed to be fantastic. I still wasn't thrilled to be going to a pizza place. Wow, this place ended up being amazing!! This is the best pizza I've had I think ever, it's so light and airy and just great!... More

Stopped by this location as wife and I are huge Wood Fired Pizza fans. Was excited to try Punch Pizza, but was not that impressed, as toppings were rather favorless and crust has a lot of olive oil on it, and was soggy. Was told that you have to order it "dry" in order to firm up crust. Prefer the... More

Just had the 'Buffalue". Not sure about the spelling but it was Aruba auto base crust and some mozzarella on it and was very excellent The good thing is you can walk-in place your order and by the time you get your bearings back it's ready to go we can turn the pizza over in under five minutes and it's...

On a recent visit to Minneapolis, family took us to PUNCH NEAPOLITAN PIZZA for pizza. As an "easterner" with plenty of pizza experience, I doubted that the pizza would be as good as my sister and nephew said. BUT....it was even better. I loved it. The little restaurant was perfect -- terrific, friendly (this is after all, Minnesota) and fast... More

We really like the wood fired pizza at Punch. We've frequent the StP Grand Ave location late Saturday afternoons: always share a salad & a pizza. The sweet red sauce is our favorite - the thin crusts are delicious. Friendly young staff!
